We kick things off with a recap video of Slammiversary, as Kurt Angle came one step closer to completing his goal, Tommy Dreamer debuted, Jay Lethal upset AJ Styles, the Enigmatic Assholes defeated Beer Money, and Jeff Jarrett made his controversial return, costing Sting the World Title.

We join Bischoff in his office backstage, he has the TNA World Tag-Team Titles on his desk. Looks like their going to deal with the fall out of the Scott Hall release right off the bat. Bischoff says that being World Champion brings along responsibility. Due to personal issues involving Scott Hall, the Band has been stripped of the World Tag Team Championships. A Tournament will begin tonight to determine who will face the MCMG at Victory Road. Nice!

Tenay and West remind us about how RVD defeated Sting to retain the belt, along with Lethal beating Styles and Angle beating Kaz. Also, Tommy Dreamer made his debut. The new Top Ten Rankings are being put together, but the top three could not be agreed on, so we’re going to have a Three Way tonight with Anderson, Hardy and Abyss!

Were Stylin and Profilin’! here comes the Nature Boy, with his entouragel. He says he’s about to make an announcement that’s going to rewrite the wrestling world. He makes his way to ring and we’re going to hear his announcement after the commercial.

We’re back and Chelsea is in the back with Abyss. She says she wants to be with him. Abyss says that the deal is up and tells her to go back to Desmond. Tonight is not the night. She won’t let up, and he says that she’s not going to want to be around him after tonight. Huh? What does he mean by that? Possible screwjob ending tonight?

Flair is in the ring with his group. He says that tonight, Ric Flair tells the TNA Wrestling world that they’re going to reform the Four Horsemen. Only, they’re going to call the group Fortune. Fortune is going to change the destiny of this business and the direction of TNA forever. Flair reminds us that the Four Horsemen lived, died and breathed trying to be the best at whatever they were doing. Flair yells at Styles. He says Barry Windham would pick up Kaz and throw him into the crowd. He says Tully Blanchard would eat both of Beer Money for lunch. Flair promises us that these are the four leading contenders. He says he forgot about Desmond, because he’s the Lex Luger of the Four Horsemen. It’s time for a change in TNA. As far as Lethal goes, are you kidding. Flair says that Styles committed Suicide. Jay Lethal, a little pissant from New Jersey, beat…Well here comes the man himself!

Yes! Lethal’s doing his Flair impression! WOOO!!! Did he hear that punk right there say anything about the Four Horsemen? The greatest group of men to ever grace god’s green. As far as he’s concerned, it looks like the Horsemen took a dump in the ring and left it. He had the privelage to be on the road, up and down, kissing the girls and making them cry. Those guys are no Horsemen. It’s disrespectful to him and the wrestling business. Flair says Lethal is a pissant. He takes of the jacket. Dude’s ready to go. Lethal takes of his jacket now. He throws it on the ground, struts across the stage and drops an elbow to the jacket. Awesome. Flair says Lethal can’t do him. Lethal says he can’t cut him off. They trade WOO’s. Lethal tells Flair not to be upset because they tore Space Mountain down. Flair says it’s the oldest ride, and the longest line. Lethal tells Flair to come up on the stage. They start trading WOO’s again. This is hilarious. Wolfe cuts Lethal off. Wolfe says he’s doing a cheap immitation of a legend, the greatest wrestler who ever lived. Wolfe is making a name for himself. He challenges Jay. Lethal says Wolfe can’t control Chelsea. Flair says he wants Lethal all night long. Lethal says that jumping on is a lot easier than jumping off. He says it’s his line, and they start to argue over who’s line it is. Flair tells Wolfe to take care of Lethal tonight, and he’ll make him the first member of Fortune. This segment was hilarious.

We see Lacey Von Erich in the back, getting a massage as she takes on the returning Angelina Love later tonight.

We see Mr. Anderson in the back. JB asks him if we’ll see the real Mr. Anderson tonight. Anderson says that depends on who you think the real Mr. Anderson is.

Doug Williams is in the ring. He says that with one incredible high flying maneuver, the rest of the X-Division is now redundant. In case we missed it, were going to see it again tonight.

Hogan wants to know when Lethal’s gonna do the Hulkster impression, lol that would be hilarious!

Tenay hypes up the Jarrett/Sting confrontation for later tonight, along with the 3 way main event to determine the number one contender.

Christy is in the back with Jeff Hardy. Jeff says it’s a three way dance tonight, and he would love nothing more than to mix it up with RVD at Victory Road. Anderson interrupts, saying that they’re a couple of people just stirring the pot. He asks how many times Jeff has had an argument with his brother that ended in a fist fight. And how many times did they end up being fine. The only thing different this time is that the TNA title is on the line. He says some other stuff, they bump fists and walk off.

Tenay reveals the top 10 rankings:

10. Kurt Angle
9. Desmond Wolfe
8. The Pope
7. Jay Lethal
6. Samoa Joe
5. Sting
4. AJ Styles

BTW how on earth is the Pope ranked that high when he hasn’t wrestled in over a month??? Dixie, Hogan and Eric are still hung up on the top three, being Anderson, Hardy and Abyss so we’ll settle that tonight.

Jarrett is in the ring, and he calls out Sting. And here he comes. Jarrett asks Sting to take the glasses off, because he wants to be able to look in Sting’s eyes and know what Sting’s feeling. He calls Sting Steve. He’s not going to ask him why again. He asked him to come out to remind him one thing. It was Jeff who called Sting to come into the company. He wanted the professionalism, the experience, the real, true, iconic status. He wanted Sting to work with him. And for the last 8 years, they’ve given everything they could to TNA. And even though they hadn’t always been on the same side, every time they’ve crossed paths, they treated each other with dignity and honor. But that all ended at Sacrifice. That wasn’t a wrestling match. Sting was hell bent on ending Jeff’s career. He was hell bent on destroying his lively hood. He wanted to make sure he destroyed everything that Jeff’s about. But Steve, he made on mistake. He left Jeff standing. Sting starts laughing. Jeff asks him if he thinks it’s funny. They’re going to have a rematch next week. Jeff says he knows what this is all about, and Sting’s dead wrong. He’s 100% wrong about both of them. Every second those two guys have been here, they’ve given it their all. He’s talking about Hulk and Eric. Next week, Jeff’s not only going to be fighting for him and his family, but he’s going to be fighting for Eric Bischoff and Hulk Hogan. And Steve, being the third generation guy that he is, he’s going to be fighting for the most important ingredient of all, he’s going to be fighting for the TNA fans. Jeff walks off and Sting’s smile is gone.

Until next week, cya round!
